Follow example of President


– Minister Nadir urges NTPYE graduates
Minister of Labour Manzoor Nadir has encouraged graduates of the National Training Project for Youth Empowerment (NTPYE)/Board of Industrial Training (BIT) at the National Cultural Centre, on Wednesday,  to follow the example of President Bharrat Jagdeo who is now one of the “Champions of the Earth”.

He made reference to President Jagdeo who, as an ordinary young man from Unity on the East Coast of Demerara, has now become a champion and a hero.
Minister Nadir at the ceremony encouraged trainees to work consistently to overcome challenges and become the best in their field.
The NTPYE is an initiative of President Jagdeo which commenced in 2005 and targets single parents and youths in the 10 administrative regions with the aim of providing skill-training to empower them for a better life.
The programme provides training and education in areas such as: handicraft, mechanic, cosmetology, pharmacy, health care, child care and carpentry.
Approximately 100 single parents and 322 trainees from Regions 3 and 4 graduated from the project on Wednesday.
